How to get Expressway-C and E licenses

Expressway-E and Expressway-C are free for existing customers who own UCL-Enhanced, CUWL-STD, or CUWL-PRO licenses and have a current UCSS subscription and accompanying ESW contract.

Expressway is not available via PUT however.  Because there are multiple SKUs that are shipped, an $0 (“zero dollar”) order must be placed with your Cisco Reseller.

Attached is a sample BOM to order Expressway-E and Expressway-C version 8.1 – Top level SKU is R-UCL-UCM-LIC-K9

Please see the comments below about PAK fulfillment and registration.  One of the PAKs includes licenses for both Expressway-C and Expressway-E and you must resiger them separately one to each serial number.

  1. Hi there. Again thanks for this brilliant blog. A superb way to get information out to the masses if you catch my drift!

    It might be worth noting for other peeps, when I got this BoM from the provider I got 3 PAK’s. One for each server for the base license and then rest came as one PAK code, I didn’t get a separate one for the core vs. edge. I had to fulfil the two separate licensing chunks out of one PAK and with two serial codes. So lines 1.6,1.7 and 1.8 went on both servers, the rest went on the EDGE server on http://www.cisco.com/go/license

    All in all, I got this working 100% and I was well chuffed with the results once I got it up and running. SO much easier than anyconnect. I just can’t wait for the proper client releases now!

    • This is excellent information David! I’ve had a customer who ended up with the licenses all screwed up because the PAK has two of each serial codes. I’ll modify the post to include this information that you need to be careful to only register one of each license from the PAK to each Expressway server.

    • Thanks a lot you guys! The post and comment was very helpful to get us going.
      Installed the LIC-SW-EXP-K9 Release Key license to each server first, and then installed the Option Keys (LIC-EXP-E-PAK) with AN/SERIES/GW/TURN/E to Expressway-E and SERIES/GW to Expressway-C.

  2. Hi,

    What is PC-10X-STANDARD-K9? Is this the license for Prime Collaboration Provisioning & Prime Collaboration Assurance?

    Thanks

  3. I am having trouble requesting the correct demo license key. I need to change the image you download from CCO to an Expressway-C as I already have a Expressway-E. Cisco is asking me the part number for that license that will change this to an Expressway-C

  5. Dear Mike,
    for Collaboration Edge License Can you please help me to make BOM with $0 cost order for my Customer who is having CUCM version 11. I am trying to make BOM with $0 cost order for CUCM version 11. But i cant see the required Item name in CCW. Thanks in advance for help.

  6. Just an FYI for future people looking for info. From expressway version 8.8 you no longer need to split up Rich Media Licenses (RMS) they now all go onto Expressway E and they count as 1 RMS is 1 traversal call. Please refer to the v8.8 release notes.

  7. Hi
    thanks for the very good information, can someone tell me about the License LIC-EXP-ROOM, where should I install it and why?
